What is the name of this distinctive sandy desert north to Tibet?

Karakum
Tian Shan
Taklamakan
Gobi
Tak­la­makan is the world's second largest shifting sand desert with about 85% made up of shifting sand dunes. Because it lies in the rain shadow of the Hi­malayas, Tak­la­makan is a paradig­mat­ic cold desert climate. During the 2008 Chinese winter storms episode, the Tak­la­makan was reported to be covered for the first time in its entirety with a thin layer of snow reaching 4 cen­time­ters (1.6 in).
